He's Back: Sylvester Stallone Will Direct Creed 2

Adjust Comment Print

Now, it's been confirmed that Sylvester Stallone will not only be returning for Creed 2, but he will also be producing and directing the movie. "One more Round!" said Stallone. It was a spinoff of the original Rockyseries, with an aged Balboa teaching Adonis Creed (the son of his former rival/friend Apollo), played by Jordan.

"Looking forward to directing and producing the incredibly talented Michael B. Jordan in Creed 2 next year", he captioned the photo of him and his Creed co-star at the film's premiere. Stallone will take over Ryan Coogler as the film's director with Michael B. Jordan reprising his role as the titular character. In addition to starring as Rocky Balboa, Stallone wrote the screenplays for all six pre-Creed films and directed Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, and Rocky Balboa.

With the project still a few months away from the start of production, it's understandable that we don't know too much about Creed 2 just yet.

Coogler is now steering Marvel superhero movie Black Panther for release in February 2018, and Stallone himself is assuming directorial responsibility for a Creed sequel.

When you think of Sylvester Stallone, you think of Rocky.
